Gaz Hazard – from Brisbane
Hailing from Brisbane’s south side GAZ HAZARD was a founding member of underground rap group CRS (Cool, Rad, Skills or Cunt Rap Syndicate). CRS garnered cult-like support in the mid to late 2000’s following the release of the crew’s debut album, “GULLY DOWN CROOKS”. Known for their rowdiness and a ‘back to basics’ approach the Cunt Rap Syndicate finally reopened their doors in 2013 with the first full-length release from one of their most promising MC’s with GAZ HAZARD’s “HAZARDOUS TO YA HEALTH” album.”HAZARDOUS TO YA HEALTH” saw Gaz trawling through a lifetime of memories from the opposite side of the law, a vantage point from which very few local MC’s can truly speak. The album featured the remarkable talents of fellow CRS members PORS 1 and SERVO who provide five verses and nine stellar beats respectively. The album also relished collaborations with close mates the 750 REBELS and HIRED GOONS, KEN OATH, BILLY BUNKS, JAKE BIZ and TORNTS bringing a powerhouse of Australian hip-hop to it’s forefront.Since the release of Hazardous To Ya Health, GAZ HAZARD has been honing his skills and perfecting his craft both on stage and in the lab. Carrying a number of admirable shows under his belt with international touring artists including RA THE RUGGED MAN, DEMIGODS (APATHY & CELPH TITLED) among others; plus national shows at STAND UP FESTIVAL in 2014 (Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide) with several local headline spots in recent years, the time has come for GAZ to once again embark on his solo journey with his sophomore album well in the works expected to release mid 2017 on KARSNIOGENICS.
